Writing to maintain sanity
"The time will come when the world will recognize you as having aided in the reformation of mankind." - Leo Tolstoy
John Locke’s Divine Right to Revolution: it’s in the air.
“I don’t know how many of you have ever had the privilege of being in a society in a pre-revolutionary situation, but the cafés stay open all night, and there’s music in the streets, and you can breath it, you can feel it, and you know what is happening.
The dominator is being pushed.”
- Terrence McKenna
Unprecedented turmoil: class and racial divisions compounding on top of a global pandemic of fear; a financial system teetering on the verge of collapse; a corrupt oligarchy, after decades of plundering, doing their best to convince you that you asked for it.
With information warfare, psychological operations, and fake news saturating all aspects of life, the Cathedral is finally stepping out of the shadows. The Final Boss is emerging.
How to make sense of any of this?
Monumental, disruptive changes are rippling across the world; and these underlying currents - economic and cultural - have been my obsession for the last decade.
I’d hoped we wouldn’t find ourselves in this situation. I’d hoped I could always communicate freely under my own name. I’d hoped that many of the craziest musings in my head wouldn’t turn out to be true.
“I was born for the storm, and a calm does not suit me.” ―Andrew Jackson
These writings are a personal attempt to reclaim my own mental sovereignty and sanity, while trying to make sense of what’s going on.
Some posts will speak to developments happening in the moment; some posts will be deeper dives into broader subjects, usually with a Philosophical bent; others may be purely medicinal, spilling out information that’s been pent up for too long inside me.
I humbly share all these in case they can be of service to you on your journey as well.
Nobody said transition into the Internet Age would be easy. We are simultaneously witnessing concurrent revolutions in:
The rise of Artificial Intelligence and Perfect Surveillance by the State
Bitcoin disempowering the State’s lifeblood by decentralizing control of money
The Managed Decline of the United States Empire geopolitically
The shift from Physical Sovereignty to Digital Sovereignty
Each alone is disruptive enough - let alone all of them happening at once. Making matters worse, much about our current paradigm is not properly understood across the population. My main intentions are to document:
How did we get here?
What is happening now?
Where is this all going?
…at least according to my own imperfect perspective and experience.
I thrive on novelty and discourse; I’m always available. So please engage on Twitter and in the Replies so we can work out these problems together.
